TesseracT have announced their new album War Of Being, due for release on 15th September 2023 via Kscope.
“War Of Being has been all encompassing for us since late 2019,” explains bassist Amos Williams. “After I returned home from filming P O R T A L S I found myself in such a deeply introspective headspace. The scale of work and reward from that project kind of set this up to be inevitable. We simply had to try and see how far we could take a concept album with TesseracT.
“Within these songs the band has given life to the themes and ideas that are personified within the characters of ‘The Strangeland’ story. It’s certainly been a catharsis and a way for me to explore the internal dissonance.”
In light of the announcement, the band have also released a video for the album’s title track – the 11-minute epic War Of Being.
“War Of Being is a fight for acceptance, a battle of existence and a resistance against ego,” explains vocalist Daniel Tompkins. “It’s a struggle for control as we cut through the white noise of reality. It’s the need to know and identify with oneself, to accept and understand what we stand for and who we are. There is an urgent need to ‘Tear the mask away’ and reveal your true self.”
War Of Being is available to pre-order HERE.
TesseracT have also announced a headline tour, with support from Unprocessed and The Callous Daoboys.
